Wk 8 Run 2

Well I ventured out on this cool, damp and very misty morning.

A slow and steady pace from start to finish, no niggley calves, no shortness of breath so wondering if is this the time to pick up the pace and push myself that little bit harder? πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Happy running πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Thanks Tasha99. I feel I didn’t make any effort and looking back at week 1 I was exhausted 🀣🀣

Well done..πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ’ͺ.one run behind you. I was tempted to try and go a bit faster today because the run started off very comfortable. Glad I saved my energy for the rest of the run...comfortable is a good place for me. Think it might be unwise until we complete ....nearly there πŸ‘. As I told someone else....we're still in the infancy of our running...plenty of time to catch up with Hussein Bolt....I know many people say the same thing....but who'd have thought it eh...week 8 😁😁😁??? πŸ™‹πŸ™‹πŸ™‹

Thank you Buddhagal and well done to you too πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Comfortable is a good place for me, but wasn’t sure it was too comfortable. I don’t like that sickly feeling you get after exercise so haven’t really pushed. I have totally surprised myself and think slow and steady is best for now. But watch out Hussain Bolt I may just catch up πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Yeah...totally with you....but I guess why spoil what we're achieving....would hate to push it and feel exhausted, gasping for breath with a bright red face...yep..been thereπŸ˜‚πŸ€£. I just keep reminding myself I'm actually doing this for pleasure as well as improving my health. Think it's a G& T celebration night....oh well...any excuseπŸ‘πŸ™‹πŸ™‹

It is the weekend, enjoy🍹🍹

Well done on getting out. You can push up the anti but only very slowly, you certainly don't want any injuries. Listen to your body.

Excellent getting out in that weather.

Stay safe and well.
